    Why do judges even entertain such blatantly parasitic litigation? All plaintiffs' lawyers bringing lawsuits-without-demonstrable-injuries should be immediately threatened with contempt charges and ordered never to return to court again with a similarly shameless and speculative complaint. Once more earns 30 days in the cooler.

    This article is very poorly written. I simply can't figure out what happened -- beyond the broad brush that some fees were cut -- and there is no information that will allow me to go to the original source. What is the name of the case? What is the citation at the district court level? Is it published in Fed Supp or FRD? What are the party names on the appellate opinion? What is the citation? Was it published? When? Article says August 19, but of what year? Terrible writing.
    BTW, the case was published by the 9th Cir. at 654 F.3d 935 in 2011
